 Comodo Internet Security Premium v7
Keep hackers locked firmly out of your PC

Comodo Internet Security Premium 7 is a collection of powerful tools which aims to keep your PC safe from even the very latest in malware threats.

The suite includes a strong antivirus engine and smart firewall. Comodo's "Defense+" system monitors program activities, looking for malware-like behaviour. The virtual desktop provides an isolated environment where you can run programs, or browse the web, without any risk to your system. And URL filtering keeps you safe by blocking access to malicious sites.

Most of this works entirely automatically, and so novice users can simply carry on using their PC just as they did before.

But if you need more control, Comodo Internet Security Premium has plenty to explore. You can monitor process activity in an extended Task Manager, or Comodo's Killswitch; there's a configurable sandbox for running suspect applications; a versatile Host Intrusion Protection System helps you define exactly what programs can (and can't) do on your system, and a host of settings and options ensure the program works exactly as you'd like.

New features this time start with the Viruscope. This looks for programs carrying out potentially unwanted actions - setting themselves up to run when your system starts, for example - and not only alerts you, but can undo these changes, restoring your system to normal.

The Website Filtering module is another welcome addition, vetting the links you click for safety. It can also limit access for particular users, perhaps preventing your children from viewing inappropriate web content.

A new Protected Data Folder gives extra protection to sensitive files, ensuring they're completely invisible to any sandboxed applications.

And there are plenty of other significant enhancements elsewhere, from a 700% speed increase for the sandbox, to a range of time-saving interface tweaks, and more than 300 bugs fixed since the previous edition.

Note that the Premium version is free. You can upgrade to Pro, Complete and Plus versions, with additional functionality such as a virus guarantee and much more.

What's new/fixed in 7.0.317799?

- Alerts are blocked while there pending notifications – This may cause some users to observe blocked Internet, delayed alerts or sometimes freezes
- Downloaded documents could not be opened in sandboxed Office 2010
- Windows 8.1 update sometimes fail if Viruscope is enabled
- BSOD while manually uninstalling inspect.sys

Verdict:

Cloud-based scanning and behaviour analysis joins a suite of top-notch security tools, designed to keep your PC secure. Recommended.

The best in both free and paid category. The UI of 6 needs some getting used to but other wise under the hood, rock solid engine. Kudos to Comodo team.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
